Hi there

I am 25 years of age and have been suffering with pain and itching for years. Recently after years of being told I had thrush a GP examined me and found white lesions on my vulva. I was sent for biopsies due to a suspicion of LS and possible VIN. Now I am so scared for the future and suffering with pain from my biopsy site and the white lesions. I started Clob tonight for the first time which has made it so much more painful down below.

I wonder how I will cope in the future. Any advise welcome

Thankyou

Sophie

    Hi Metalpetal when I had my biopsy a few weeks ago I was told to wait a week before using Clob and the first week it was sore but it's better now

      Hi Gillian I have given up on the Clob for now. They gave me no advice really just use it twice a day and we will call you with results. They didn't even give me any after care advice about down below. This site has been a life saver in helping me figure out what to do!

      I hope your site is much better now xx

      Hi Gillian,

      good  luck with your follow up.  I agree we need more information, it shouldn't be left for us to google  everything.  Having said that I have found great information on here about products to use.  The consultants seem to only have a few to hand they recommend.  I asked about a yearly check which I'm sure we are supposed to get but they said no,  maybe you should press for a follow up as I aren't certain sometimes what changes I should be looking for really.   I think they seem so ready to diagnose and discharge us too quickly.  X
